Summertime in the Smokys 

August 8-12, 2018

     The idyllic setting of Cades Cove, a nearly 7000 acre valley near Townsend Tennessee, is a sampler of everything the Smoky Mountains has to offer. We will spend three full days exploring this unique environment as well as Roaring Forks, the Tremont area and Clingmans Dome. Shooting will include landscapes, mountain scenes, sunrises, sunsets, pioneer cabins, and conditions permitting, wildlife. We'll meet Wednesday night to discuss shooting technique and what we'll see and to lay out our itinerary. This will allow us to start shooting at first light Thursday morning. We'll shoot all day Friday and Saturday. We'll discuss and demonstrate, in the field, composition and exposure techniques for shooting landscapes, waterfalls and macro. There will be critique and review sessions after each day's shooting.

Places we'll visit: Cades Cove, Tremont, Roaring Forks (motor nature trail), The Chimneys recreation area, Newfound Gap and Clingman's Dome

What we'll learn: A variety of techniques for capturing dramatic mountain landscapes and waterfalls, macro techniques, techniques for sunrise/sunset, effective use of filters.
